Meet Generation Z: The country's most diverse generation to date, made up of teenagers & college-aged students that comprise 25% of the U.S. population, outnumbering Millennials & Baby Boomers. As the first truly global generation, they're culturally & politically passionate, on the cusp of entering the workforce. And they're seeking revolution.
Join us at LMHQ for our April Women's Breakfast about youth + activism, & how the rise of students' voices affects our future political landscape. While student activism has a long history of leading to political change, we'll be discussing what's different today & how we can support these future leaders & activists. Whatever industry you currently work in - education, advertising, tech, media - it's time to get educated about the how's & why's of youth activism including those fighting on behalf of themselves & their peers, those fighting for the rights of marginalized communities & for societal change at large. What tools are being built to empower & protect this generation, & what can we do to support them?
Hear from Erikka James, Director of Leadership & Global Programs at The Lower Eastside Girls Club, Catherine McCarthy, Education Program Manager at The Moth, Johanna Miller, Advocacy Director at NYCLU, & Tabitha St. Bernard-Jacobs, Women's March's Youth Initiatives Coordinator. They'll be speaking about anti-violence toolkits, school bathroom laws & the de-militarization of NYC public schools, the #ENOUGH initiative, & student workshops on storytelling that build empathy & give voice to a generation.
Doors open at 8:30 AM for bagels & coffee & an opportunity for networking, & our panel kicks off at 9:00 AM sharp. We can't wait to see you!This event is sponsored by Verizon.
